Anna chose to pursue architecture because it is a profession that fully utilizes both the creative and rational aspects of the intellect.

Anna currently leads the refurbishment and adaptive reuse of North York’s Yonge Sheppard Centre, one of Toronto’s largest ongoing mixed-use developments. She has served as project architect for a number of complex multi-building projects, including the ONroute service centres along Ontario’s 400 and 401 highways, and Downtown Markham, a major mixed-use community being developed near the Rouge River. Anna was also an integral part of the Planning, Design and Compliance team that prepared standards for the construction of the Athletes’ Village of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games. She has worked on a wide range of commercial broadcast, residential, seniors’ residential, adaptive reuse and retail projects. As an Executive Principal at Quadrangle, she leads the strategic direction of the firm and oversees the firm’s management and operations, ensuring that each project has the right project team to run smoothly and successfully and that recruitment needs are met.
